Quick update - I've now had 2 cycles of chemo, and just had the first follow-up CT earlier this week. The results show a 50%-65% reduction in size of all cancerous nodes, so the chemo is proving quite effective so far. I have another cycle still planned, and then hopefully a PET scan after that to determine if this is back into clinical remission or not . . . if so, we go onwards towards the stem cell transplant, and if not, than probably another cycle or two of more chemo.

Either way, we're coming along nicely.

Yeah, they've got me on zofran and phenergan for naseau . . . thankfully, though, I'm not really experiencing a lot of that, so I can keep the meds to the side for now. I'm surprised at how well I'm handling the chemo this time around, even though it's entirelly different medicine than what I went through years ago. I need to see about getting in touch with one of the docs today about possibly having some bloodwork done, simply to check my cell counts and electrolyte levels and all.

It's still a burden, though, mentally, emotionally and physically . . . I'm continuing to do my best to look much further down the road, once all these treatments will be behind me again; everything in between is simply a speed bump

Another update - I've gotten through the surgical biopsy last week, and have just spent the last 3 days in the hospital recieving my first cycle of chemo. I'm handling the effects of the medicines quite well this time around, which is good . . . so far we plan 3 chemo treatments, and then a bone-marrow transplant. Luckily, the marrow biopsy came back negative, which puts me at Stage 3 Hodgkin's. This is a relapse of what I underwent treatment for before 8 years ago. Anyhow, with the transplant, they can re-use my bone marrow, which will eliminate the worry about transplant rejection and all that mess . . . but, I'll still be stuck in a hospital for 2-3 weeks as my immune system will be crippled and will have to rebuild.

I'll keep everyone posted as I progress through . . . it'll be a slow trip, and rough, but managable!

Good to hear that you keep a your spirit up during this .

One of the things we got for our son when he went through Chemo, was Zofran. It is avalable as a pill, and liquid. We got the liquid, and put in some orange juice, this helped against nausea, and the urge to vomit.
One of the side effects can be headache, and constipation.

So hang in there buddy

NatVac - that has simply to be one of the most inspiring statements I've seen someone make so far, and it's definitely appreciated. I'm honored by the out-pouring of support I'm receiving this time around, from friends, family and the online communities. It's been very rough so far both physically and emotionally, and I've yet to even begin treatment . . . I'm already looking further down the road, once all that will be behind me.

{imperialreign}, you have already left more of a mark on this world than most folks three times your age. (And by "mark" I mean legacy, not impact crater.)

I want to thank you for adding to my world and making it better, but I still fully expect a good deal more, too, and not all is selfish in that expectation. Folks who have had to fight for their existence seem to value it more than those who have known only careless ease, and you have a quality of persistence that should "stand you in good stead", with the side effect of our continued benefit.

I have too much to live for, too much I still want to do to simply allow a blood cancer and it's treatments to beat me into submission.

Much appreciated, everyone!

As I said, I've faced it before . . . which leaves some distinct pros and cons.

One one hand, I know what I'm getting into, I have the past experience to know what's involved down the road . . .

. . . but at the same time, that experience weighs heavily - in that, I know how much of a bitch this ordeal is going to be, how shitty I'm going to feel, how much anxiety I'm going to be dealing with, how painful some of the procedures are . . . I'm at least not dealing with the "unknown" that most cancer patients must face. But knowing can be just as heavy as burden as being ignorant.

Don't get me wrong, though - as I stated, I'm too damn stubborn to just give up. That strong Lithuanian blood in me won't allow me to do so, lol. It's going to be a little rougher this time around, but I've beaten it once, I can definitely do so again.

I can at least say that I've seen a much stronger out-pouring of support from friends, family and the online communities I'm involved with. When I faced it the first time almost 10 years ago, the majority of the time I faced it by my own will, with nearly no support.

I'll put it this way - I'm only 29. I have too much to live for, too much I still want to do to simply allow a blood cancer and it's treatments to beat me into submission.
